Our Process

Are we a good fit for you?

To begin, we will schedule a meeting or conference call with you and our studio design manager, Sakshi Uomoto, to learn about your site, needs, personal aesthetics, and project budget.  We are here to listen and understand how we can help achieve your goals. We then proceed to share some relevant Lindal home plans and provide you with preliminary estimates to help with project financial feasibility.

Design Service Agreement

The Design Service Agreement – aka schematic design and estimating phase – is what makes Lindal unique.  Using creativity, Lindal structural system guidelines, and architectural strategies, we establish your project size, shape, and orientation and provide you with schematic home drawings, shadow studies, 3D model and Lindal materials kit and services estimate.

Purchase & Sales Agreement

Phase 1 | Design Development

During this phase, we work on a preliminary construction set for your Lindal home and simultaneously coordinate with all necessary consultants for your project.  This process will be adapted based on the number and scope of work of external consultants. Depending on your specific needs, we can collaborate with civil engineers, arborists, permit specialists, landscape architects, interior designers, and more.

Phase 2 | Construction Documents

Now is when we zoom in on the details; from finalizing the structural drawings to the material finishes for your Lindal home. We also select everything  – from the color of your walls to the type of flooring – needed to make your home move-in ready.  At the conclusion of this phase, we hand off the construction set to you to apply for a building permit within your jurisdiction.

Authorization To Ship

As soon as you get your approved permit from the jurisdiction, we begin manufacturing your Lindal home elements.

During this final stretch, we work together to make your vision a tangible reality and make sure its executed right. Our customer service team is available to assist you with construction administration.

Different Ways to Start The Schematic Design Process

Whether you’re moving up, scaling down, building a sleek modern home or a cozy country retreat, the Lindal system gives you unprecedented design flexibility to create your unique home. Of course, you can have any of our time-proven floor plans just as they appear in our house plan books. Or, you can work with us to create your own one-of-a-kind Lindal home.

Personalize an Existing Lindal Floor Plan

Many homeowners use their favorite Lindal plan as a point of departure for creating their original home. A few simple modifications can have a great impact on the style of your Lindal home. Some changes are as simple as the choice of exterior materials and accents, or a change in the shape or placement of windows. Sakshi Uomoto of Seattle Cedar will help you explore the many ways that such modifications can have a tremendous visual, lifestyle, and budget impact.

As you look around, you’ll find wide disparities in the quality of design and building materials – even among high-end homes. Many companies limit your selection of plans and options to personalize your home. Lindal is different.
